In their second annual draft, Matt and Marcus compete against three other Anselm artists to assemble history's most interesting pub table!
The Believe to See Podcast
The podcast of the Anselm Society Arts Guild. Hosts Matt Mellema and Marcus Robinson go deep with artists about their craft, and also enjoy very serious conversations about very silly subjects. “Some things have to be believed to be seen." -Madeleine L'Engle
What are Christian Inspiration books? How does the market shape them? Why do ignorant men like Matt have no idea what they are? Author Evangeline Denmark, editor September Grace, and Matt's wife Danielle join the table to figure it out.
It's Marcus' last show before he moves to Portland. Before leaving the table, he shares his journey as an artist, and his final music recommendations. Also, Matt presents a sonnet he wrote in honor of Marcus' beard.
The pub table is buzzing with unanswered questions. What makes a good detective story? Can it ever be great literature? Why have so many Christian authors been fans? Author Sarah Pottenger joins the table to crack the case.
How should we respond when horrible people make art that we love? Megan McCluskey and Amy Lee join the table to discuss.
Writer Amy Lee returns to the pub table to talk about the perils of safety, and the sometimes-crazy lengths we go to shield ourselves and our children from dangerous art.
Taking a page from CS Lewis’s famous essay, Church Historian Blake Hartung joins the table to discuss the joys and benefits of reading ancient literature.
Mandi Hart is the president of Cave Pictures Publishing, a new line of comics for the “spiritually inclined.” She joins the table to talk about the unique power of comics, and their role in modern myth-making.
The combined Anselm podcast hosts stick around to talk a broad range of arts and faith topics--everything from whether art should be "useful" to whether Pilgrim's Progress is actually bad.
The whole Anselm digital pub gets together for a special event as Matt and Marcus meet up with the hosts of "Speaking with Joy" and "Redeemed Imagination."
As winter begins, Marcus and Matt talk about works of art they used to love. Matt also hands out his first annual "Ralphie Awards" for the (too) many Christmas specials he watched this year.
